Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in genealogy for most of my life – thanks to my Aunt Iola who wrote and contributed to a number of family histories. Lewis and I have always taken pictures of grave markers as a means of documenting our families. Last year this interest took us to Hants County, Nova Scotia. I have been posting the cemetery pictures we took on Ancestry and recently received a note suggesting I post my pictures on Findagrave – and here I am!

I would be happy to transfer any memorial page that I created to anyone who is closer to the person honored than I am. I welcome corrections and am happy to make additions.

Photos of Graves in Oakhill Cemetery, Ellershouse‏
Hi Barbara,

My Great-Grand Uncle and Aunts and their families are in this cemetery and I wanted to ask if you knew a way that I could get photographs of the graves? If you know of anyone who I could contact that would be great!

I am looking for:

Charles FOSTER (1882 - 1936) and his wife Clara Maud MOREHAM (1881 - 1967)

Their children:
Hazel Maud FOSTER (1909 - 1986) married Frederick Allen ROSS (1914 - 1946)
Kathleen Alice FOSTER (1911 - 1973)
Mabel Ruth FOSTER (1913 - 1982) married James Frederick LYTTLE (1908 - 1995)
Madeline Clara FOSTER (1915 - ?) married Hugh Hiram LYGHTLE (1916 - ?)
Richard Charles FOSTER (1918 - 1979) married Marguerite PELLEY (1923 - Still Alive?)

Charles and his wife Clara emigrated from England to Nova Scotia in 1908 and Charles's two younger sisters joined them the next year.

Julia FOSTER (1887 - 1925) married Welsford Ralph PARKER (1895 - 1976). They are buried at Falmouth (I Think!)


Elizabeth Jane FOSTER (1890 - 1963)

My aunt used to get Christmas sweets sent to her when she was young from an aunt Lizzie in Canada whom she had never met. It is good to be able to find out who that aunt was!

If you can help with the photos that would be great. If not then no worries

All the best

Lenora S. Reynolds
I found a copy of Lenora's death certificate which gives her birth day as November 24, 1856. Is the birth day you gave from her stone? Does a birth record exist for Lenora? I'm researching the family of another descendent of Alexander and Rebecca Bryson/Brison, their son James.

Before I make the change, why do you want me to delete Harriet Belknap as the wife of Maurice Reynolds? There is a marriage certificate for them marrying in Fitchburg, Mass. in 1901 and she appears on the birth certificates of both children.

Ref David S McClure
Thanks for the tip on David. Looking at your note on his wife Martha S Brown, 1484478283 a couple questions; 1) were not Martha J 1874 and Andrew grandchildren of Dave/Martha, children of Martha McClure Craig?
2) I wonder if Mary E 1849-???? and Martha Ellen 1852 possible the same person. Mary E is listed in the 1850 age 1, in 1860 as age 8 then not at all in 1870, but Martha appears at age 18, but was not in the previous 1860 or 1850. And then there is a Mary Ann appearing in the 1860 at age 3. That would make 3 children named Mary. Maybe Mary E changed her name to Martha?
Not picking, just wondering.

RE: David S McClure # 121248599
That note was taken from a article written by Patrick Pearsey on Gen Forum: 3891 of 5043, dated Feb 14, 2005. Must be some confusion over this, but I well remove the comment. This is part of what Pearsey wrote about David S McClure:
Ten brothers and sisters left, but one brother settled in Kentucky and one brother settled in Tennessee.7 Eleanor McClure, aged 60-70, widow, resided Perry County, Illinois, 1840, (page 1). Cathcart / Baskin Genealogy Home Page

. i. Alexander McClure, b. ca.1800, d. 3-11-1845 m. 1825 Eliza Jane Gillespie (Ancestry World Family Tree Project) Alexander was born in S.C. and died in Perry County, Illinois. He was listed in the 1830 census of Perry County, the only McClure then living there. Buried in Cutler Cemetery, Perry Co. IL.

. ii. William McClure b. ca.1804

. iii. Samuel McClure b. 12-31-1806 d. 1-11-1880 m. Mary Ann “Margaret” Samuel was born in S.C. Samuel McClure, aged 20-30 was counted in the 1830 census of Alexander County, Illinois. He purchased land in Perry County, Illinois on December 14, 1836. 1 He died there. Buried in the Cutler Cemetery.

. iv. David S. McClure b. 3-29-1812 d. 1-14-1891 m. 12-24-1833 Elizabeth Finley (Perry Co. IL. – Illinois State Marriage Database) m. Martha S. David was born in S.C. He purchased land in Perry County, Illinois on 6-30-1840.2 He died there. Buried in the Cutler Cemetery.

RE: Thank You!
Sorry. Sarah and Elmer Udell. They are buried in the same family cemetery plot as the two Hyde burials. The backside of the large "Hyde" stone carries the name Udell. The two burials are Sarah and Elmer Udell. I would assume that they are related to the Hydes, and perhaps are your own relatives.

The surname is Udall. Spell check seems to want to edit on its own.

RE: Thank You!
Feel free to use the photos as needed. Please acknowledge the source. In the same cemetery there are two other graves you may want to note. The other side of the large "Hyde" stone reads the surname "aurally." I created memorials for the two Udall burials and attached photos of the headstones. I assume they were related, at least by marriage. Perhaps they are also your relatives. If so, let me know if you would like to manage those two memorials.

John Kizziar #147898256
Thank you for the suggestion, but I've just entered quite a few Kizziar's in this cemetery, wish there was a way I could locate a cemetery index or a way to email them a list to obtain burial plots. I know there are some Kizziar's in Greenlawn also. Right now I'm not really worried, I'm just trying locate & verify information on each one of them. I may try emailing the cemetery to see if they could verify and supply the burial plots. Have a great week - Sue Armstrong
